Icosahedral quasi-crystals

  1. Dec 22, 2008 #1

    Please could someone explain what properties an icosahedral quasi crystal has which make it differ from a polygonal quasicrystal. (I assume it has something to do with rotational symmetry)

    reffer to the book "atomic and electronic structure of solids" by efthimios kaxiras

    there you can find a brief but useful description of icosahedral crystals..

    hope it helps
